Formerly from single vineyard, young vine Tempranillo in Penafiel, Almate now features 80-year-old vines from just down the road in Valtiendas. Aromas of boysenberry sap, bing cherry liqueur, sweet baking chocolate, oregano, black pepper, just-baked bread, and warm earth meld with supremely juicy fruit and a silty, pleasingly unfiltered texture on the tongue: sweet raspberry-currant, lemon balm, wild roses with short tannic thorns, and a subtle trickle of coffee on the pure, almost mineral finish. An insanely plush and precocious entry level cuvee. -AR
